One local 4-H member from Nolan County was among 30 youth honored during the Texas AgriLife Extension Service's District 7 4-H Gold Star banquet. The annual event was held Nov. 1, in the Cactus Hotel in San Angelo. The honoree was Parker Scott. The Gold Star Award is the highest honor given by AgriLife Extension on the county level. Winners are picked based on their personal development, leadership and achievement in 4-H projects, and on activities and contributions made to the 4-H program.
The annual Friend of 4-H Award was presented to Tractor Supply Company for their continued support of the 4-H program through fund raisers, donations to various county 4-H events and discounts on merchandise to 4-H members. The award is given annually to an individual or business for their support of the district's 4-H program. The Gold Star Banquet is sponsored annually in the 23-county district AgriLife Extension and AEP-Texas.
